My Story

Here's some words that might help:


You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all he has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him,
or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow
and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow
because of yesterday.
You can remember him
and only that he's gone,
or you can cherish his memory
and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back,
or you can do what he'd want:

Smile, Open Your Eyes,
Love and Go On.

Aaron entered the military in April 2005 as a cavalry scout. He was assigned to the 1st Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division since August 2005, serving most recently as the squadron commander's gunner.  During his time with the 1st Cavalry Division, Allmandinger deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom Rotation 06-08, earning the Combat Action Badge, two Army Commendation Medals, the Iraqi Campaign Medal with Campaign Star and the Global War on Terrorism Medal, among many others.  While in Iraq, Aaron served in squadron's Charlie Troop and conducted patrols from Combat Outpost X-Ray in Taji, Iraq. During a large, well-organized enemy ambush in Falahat, Iraq, on Feb. 16, 2007, Aaron provided suppressive fire in support of his fellow Soldiers and was later awarded the Army Commendation Medal for his actions, which contributed to the survival of his squad.

As you can see, he truly was an American hero.  He served his country well, and many people from 1-7 will never forget that piece of their heart that belongs to Aaron.  He was a devoted family man, and that is what set him apart from the rest.  Never forget the mark he has left on the world, the army, and all of us personally.  It is by remembering the good times that we honor his memory and he lives on in all of our hearts. 

 But he's in a better place, so watch out for us when we deploy this time, would ya Dinger?
